 Lynn was a tough girl, but she still liked in when her Mother tucked her in at night.  She liked the smell of coconut and spices, and her warm hugs.  It was even more special because her Mom had been gone.  Dead and in a hospital bed for days and days.

But now she was getting tucked in, and everything was fine.  Almost everything.

"It's coming."  She warned Janie. "Mommy, you've got to help.  It's coming."

"What's coming, sweetie?"

"I'm sorry."

The little girl pretended to close her eyes, until her light was off and her Mother out of the room.
 
Then she stared at the ceiling and willed The Beast to keep her awake.  It almost worked, until three in the morning.  She woke up screaming.

Janie ran in and held her child until the tears stopped.  Neither of them got anymore sleep that night.
